GRAND HAVEN, Mich. -- Muskegon senior Alyza Winston scored 34 points as Muskegon ran past East Kentwood, 67-46, Monday night in a regional semifinal.

"Our girls are seizing the moment right now, " Muskegon head coach Rodney Walker said. "We have some seniors that don't want this to be their last game, so they are playing with a little bit more energy."

The Big Reds lost to the Falcons way back on December 7, 52-51. Monday night was a different story.

"We kind of had a vendetta, because we really shouldn't have lost that game," Winston said.  "We just worked really hard this week, and we came in right off the bat and did what we had to do."

Muskegon (19-4) will play Hudsonville (15-9) in the regional final Wednesday at Grand Haven.
